With one of the smartest Smart hubs in the business, the LG 42LN575V offers a whole lot more than simple TV!

GREAT PICTURE QUALITY WITH LED AND 100HZ MCI PROCESSING


Whether you watch content off-air, online or from a separate source, the 42LN575V offers a top performance. The LED backlighting offers deeper blacks and greatly improved contrast over conventional LCD TVs. As well as the bright, detailed and natural picture quality, the LG 42LN575V offers smooth motion. Thanks to 100Hz MCI (Motion Clarity Index) processing, images are sharper and have less blur with fast moving action scenes.

CRISP SOUND QUALITY

Boosting the sound quality, you'll find LG's Virtual Surround Plus processing for a more enveloping sound quality to match the picture. There are also six other sound modes and three position modes for precise adjustment. LG's popular Clear Voice II is on hand to help out with "busy" and congested soundtracks where it can sometimes be tricky to make out dialogue. While it's certainly no match for a separate AV system, the onboard system is better than you might expect.

SMARTSHARE FOR THE SLICKEST MEDIA INTEGRATION

In terms of smart functionality, the LN575V range is one of the best. As you'd expect, there's a premium range of LG applications, including many popular video on demand apps, such as YouTube. There's also a web browser plus DLNA certification to allow you to stream across your network from other devices, such as your PC or laptop. Yet, the LN575V goes further than this; much further. 2nd display let's you push content from your TV to a second compatible device, such as smartphone or tablet, meaning you'll never miss out on the action! Miracast lets you watch what's on your mobile or tablet, on the big screen - wirelessly (Miracast requires a WiFi network and Miracast certified smartphone. Smartphone firmware update may be required). Alternatively, for the highest quality video, MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) allows you to link up compatible smartphones or tablets and stream video via HDMI.

SMOOTH GOOD LOOKS

With its narrow bezel, the 575V range looks good when switched off but is unobtrusive when on. Also new for this model is a revised 'ribbon' stand with smooth good looks.

With smart good looks and even smarter tech, the LG 42LN575V is a powerful performer.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 11 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by fabulous Easy set up, small bezel, light and great vaiu for money. Sound can be output via a mini-jack headphone socket or an optical out for a surround sound amplifier. 14 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by For the price the picture and smart features don't come much better. Good picture. Good price. Well impressed with the smart features. 10 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by problems connecting surround sound bought this tv its brilliant except from i bought a theater system 5.1 and it only has rca to connect to the tv which i cant get to work so i called lg and they said the red and white rca on back of tv is not sound output so how can i get it connected 11 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fantastic TV Bought this tv last week and im extremely impressed with it, the picture quality(connected to sky hd) is amazing, its pin sharp and just a joy to watch tv now. When i started to play on the playstation its like having a new console all over again as the experience is just THAT much better than older LCD tv's. As far as sound quality goes i wasnt expecting much due to what ive read about slim tv's having poor and tinny sound, but to be honest the sound ive found to be really good, the voice is clear and its not tinny at all, its a fairly full sound and would certainly fill a medium sized room with no problem at all, and its not one of those you need to turn right up, ive literally got mine set on ''12'' out of god knows how far it goes up to but id say its on a low setting and its still loud enough. Using the tv is also very easy because the menu system is very user friendly. As someone else said too, BBC iplayer DOES work, everything is there and works great. Could not be happier. 31 December 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Terrible picture quality The colours are not true no matter how much you try to adjust. Magenta highlight casts and cyan shadow. Also flaring highlights and poor shadow detail spoil this TV. Very easy set up and good internet capability. Sound is tinny and needs a speaker system. I returned it. Richer Sounds were great with this and if they have stock of the TV I finally decide on I will purchase from them. 21 October 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent TV - A good purchase! The settings and smart functions on this tv are quite easy to navigate through. We particularly like the smart phone app which enables your phone to be used as a mouse pointer. You can also change the volume and channels from your phone. I'm not sure the phone app matches the full functions of the magic remote (sold separately) but we are quite happy to use our phones instead of paying extra for the remote. Probably the best TV you can buy in this price range. Smooth picture with good bright colours. With the free 5 year guarantee from Richer Sounds it was an easy decision! 15 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't understand the negative reviews... ...especially the one where the tv is 'too smart for the owner' - so why did you buy this model then ?! I've had it a few months now to replace my Elonex 37" bedroom tv that finally died after 4 yrs ( 3 yr g'tee meh ! ) Fantastic features, sound and picture once all set up - BBC iPlayer IS 100% supported and works flawlessly for me ( in response to the owner that said otherwise ) I have it wall mounted and having the in-built stereo speakers on the base of the unit provides a great compromise ( usually on the back and sound is tinny needing a soundbar etc - my old Elonex had a built it soundbar / forward facing speakers but made the tv look big, and the sound on this unit is far better with so many tweaking options etc ! ) Very thin and small bezel too, 2013 model - great eco / energy saving unit + Vesa compatible and Richer Sound's legendary 5yr g'tee thrown in for free - what's not to like ? Thoroughly recommended ( PS I specifically did NOT want a 3D model ) 12 August 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by wish I was 30 years younger Smart hub well it is just to smart for me no information on how to work it so a bit stumped....... I will just stay with 1 2 3 4 5 that is what happens when you are over 60. 07 July 2013
